She was forbidden fruit.
The sister of a man I respected.
I shouldn’t touch her. But I have to.
She’s addictive.
Even better, she bites.
But she’s been through so much, suffered the worst kind of abuse, and even as I want to shield her from the world, I can’t.
I’m a Sinner.
I bring danger with me wherever I go.
Once it taints her, there’s no going back…



He was forbidden fruit.
A brother in the MC that I thought I’d escaped a long time ago.
I shouldn’t want him. But I need him.
He’s addictive.
Even better, he makes me burn.
But he’s been through so much, endured the worst kind of betrayal, and even though he’s an enigma to me, I crave him.
He makes me want to sin.
He’s dangerous.
But I’m already tainted. I’ve shed blood, and now there’s no going back…

For the first time in my life, I’m ready to face what happened to me to make a brighter future for myself, but can I do that with a man who’s running from his past?

I’d known she was unusual, right from the start. Things with Indy had always been aggressive. At first, it had been a turn on. The Dom in me liked that she was quick to act, willing to be violent. At first. Then, quickly, I’d realized she got nothing out of it.


She made all the right noises, then she’d turn off the second I touched her. I knew a woman’s body, knew hers even more. Disarming her was the only way forward I’d soon learned, then, she’d had that nightmare, and suddenly everything made sense, and I knew what she needed. Not because I was some kind of fucking guru, but because I knew Indy. She was aggressive by nature. Could butt heads with her biker brothers. Was independent enough to have made a name for herself in a male-dominated industry, and was ferocious enough to fight the way she did pre-fuck.

I warmed her up with violence. Messed with her nerves, made them clamor in silent alarm so that she could deal with skin-to-skin contact.

I teased her with control. Made her bow to me, relinquishing all thoughts, all worries, all stresses and strains.

I dominated her with strength. Taking her weakness, owning it, protecting it. Giving her rules and parameters, letting her take ownership of the one thing she did control—her body.

Finally, I fucked her with fire. Taking what I needed, knowing full well that, once primed, she was more than along for the ride…

Cruz by Serena Akeroyd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fun Fact: I started this series 5 weeks ago and read one book per week leading up to Cruz last week and I have no clue how any of you just waited around for the next book to be published in this incredibly captivating series! I AM IN DEEP PEOPLE! Each book added and intensified my need for more.

What an incredible story Cruz & Indi made, and the MC’s arc is just as fantastic! Everyone’s story was fantastic! Some were deeper than others but they all rode that edge between dark and gritty that I love so much in my MC romance reads!

This was an emotional story and at some points quite gutting. I’m not gonna lie, I cried quite a bit. They aren’t called the Dark & Dirty Sinners because they love singing in a field of daisies so any warnings you read about, heed them. Seriously. However, the story was pure heart surrounded by hope and it was magnificent!

I love how uninhibited the author is with her prose and her style is perfect for me. She doesn’t flower up the dark and sinister side of life and I appreciate that in my fiction. Yes, I like to escape when I read, but I also expect a level of realism and this author delivered that in all the five books I’ve read to this point. I’m not a paranormal reader so I won’t be reading too many of her book on her backlist but I’ve downloaded her Five Points’ Mob books and will read anything else she publishes in a heartbeat!
